A Devon MP has been chosen to help chair the EU (Withdrawal) Bill as it's debated by Parliament in the coming months.
Gary Streeter, the South West Devon MP, is one of four long-standing politicians - two Conservatives and two Labour - chosen to oversee the bill.
I am delighted to have been asked to chair the proceedings of this momentous bill as it will place me at the heart of historic legislation. It is likely to be both fascinating and gruelling in equal measure. It will mean me being at Westminster more over the next few months than in recent years. My urgent task is to read and understand the very technical bill in great detail as well as learn the names of the new MPs elected in June!"
Meanwhile, David Davis has accused Labour of a "cynical and unprincipled" attempt to block a key piece of legislation that will take Britain out of the EU.
The Brexit Secretary claimed Britons "will not forgive" Labour if they try to "delay or destroy" the process.
Labour backs Brexit but says it will vote against the bill as it stands.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer branded it a "huge power grab" by ministers that would "reduce MPs to spectators".
